Electronic Signature for Baselines

Baseline signature functionality is accessed using the Tools > Baseline Signatures menu item. Selecting this menu item displays the Baseline Signatures window. From this window, you can view details about a signed baseline, add a new signature, view and print signature reports, and compare baselines.

Depending on the status of the signature, the signatures are displayed in various colors and font styles:

Signature details

You can view the details of baseline signatures using the Details button in the Baseline Signatures window. Select a signed baseline in the list and click the Details button to display the Baseline Signature window. The window displays information about the baseline, such as the project, the version of the baseline, and dates the baseline was initialized, locked and signed. It also displays signature information such as the signatory, the signatory’s title, signature meaning and comments.

Signature reports

Select the Signature Report button in the Baseline Signatures window to view a report of a baseline’s signatures. The report is launched in your web browser. The report is sorted using the same sort order as the signature list in the Baseline Signatures window. You can also view signature information in reports using Document Factory.
